My Green Mile


I found god in my Great Grandmother's eyes
where only the truth lies
dreams come to reality
in a heavenly playing field
no tricks no lies
no tall tales of a kiss goodbye
protected, safe and warm in grandmother's arms
puts my soul to ease, eyes lit smile
knowing on my time I'll see her again
when I walk the green mile.

    beautiful
    short but so meaningful
    The contradiction beween the first stanza and the second where even in your grandmother's eyes you found the truth was lying.
    I agree with you.you will see her again
    by the way GOD BLESS Michael Clarke Duncan and you
